Acquiring Domantas Sabonis at the NBA trade deadline was a big move for the Kings to make, but at what cost? 

Losing Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield, two key core pieces, in favor of Sabonis has not made the Kings better than they were earlier in the season and it looks like they will be missing the playoffs again… for the 16th consecutive season. 

Sacramento cannot get anything right anymore and now, heading into yet another offseason with major question marks, all attention will be turned to finding ways to get Fox and Sabonis the supporting cast they need to win games. 

Harrison Barnes is a potential trade candidate since he is going to be entering the final year of his contract and Richaun Holmes is also a potential trade candidate given that his value to Sacramento has dropped tremendously since they acquired Domantas Sabonis.

Holmes’ minutes are down, his scoring production has dropped tremendously and the Kings really have not utilized him much down the stretch run of the season. 

It is not hard to believe that Sacramento will look to move Richaun Holmes in the offseason should the opportunity come their way and the Dallas Mavericks could be a team to show interest in the 28-year-old center.

As a result, let’s take a look at a hypothetical offseason trade proposal that would send Holmes to the Dallas Mavericks.
